Re: Centre Stand

Hi

I hope not - it'll make a mess of my powder coat conforming it:

Rear wheel was around 1.5" off the ground with the stand like this.

Hi

Essentially horizontal - the knives get it started in the gussets and the rest is straight forward. Approaching it from the front and pulling rearwards gets you past the 45 degree braces.

Re: Stuck PRF

Hi What's a PRF :? - pivoted rear frame? Anyhow, I fitted mine a few days ago after the components came back from powder coating. With the frame resting upside down on some blocks I tilted the SA to one side so as it could be placed against the down tube then with the aid of a couple of knives, (dec...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

What do you know of the two that bolt the extremity of the frame rails to the tailpiece? Hi Aren't they 0207 - 5/16" x 5/8" x 26 TPI? (though I think Draganfly have the associated washer incorrectly identified). For what it's worth, the two sections of mine are designed to be secured toge...

Re: Primary chaincase disaster

Hi Dave
If you offer up the parts of the front of the inner case to the bit in situ you'll be able to determine if the force was forwards or backwards, ie which sprocket was involved.

Edited to add: Your first photo suggests the force was rearwards.

Re: Primary chaincase disaster

Hi I think you should focus your investigation onto the clutch sprocket - I would suggest the bolt from the inner chaincase has dropped out and onto the primary chain where it has been carried back to the clutch sprocket and caused the damage to the lower rear of the chain case - the damage to the f...

Re: Primary chaincase disaster

Hi
I don't believe the chain could be slack enough to ramp over the sprocket - I'd be searching for something that has come adrift and been carried around between the chain and sprocket. Where is the inner case retaining bolt from just aft of the engine sprocket?

Re: oil lines

Hi Derek Do you have the same connections as me? (the photo Simon linked to). For the FH the primary chain case chain oiler was discontinued, I think in 56, and the fourth outlet from the oil tank introduced was from the wick oiler to the chain via the FERC - the inner primary chain case hole for th...

Re: oil lines

Hi Derek
If you are referring to the pipe that comes from the inner timing cover via a 90 degree union - yes it's a breather, (part number 2100-37 - you can look it up in the Draganfly catalogue or a parts list).
